No way Rashad can stand with Bones. He can barely make eye contact during the stare down, which for Jones will be exactly that, a stare DOWN. Rashad has a slight speed advantage but not enough of one to make up for 9 inches of reach. Bones isn't slow either.
At no time during this fight should Shad try to play the distance game with Jones. If he does the fight is over real quick. I dont even think he could reach Jones with his leg kicks. No, the only way he can stay standing is if he can capitalize on a mistake Jones makes, which isn't too often and IMO this will be the best Jones yet.
